South San Francisco Measure J newsletter Mar 2013-page-001

Updated newsletter on the progress of Measure J funds

The first newsletter on the progress of Measure J funds

Thank you to our South San Francisco Unified School District Trustee Liza Normandy for providing us with a copy of this newsletter giving updates on Measure J. As most will remember, Measure J passed with tremendous support from our community to ensure our classrooms and our schools would be upgraded. Bond monies are not to go to administrative or towards teachers salaries.

For the full language of Measure J please click HERE.  Last September parents, teachers, coaches, students and alumni packed the city council chambers during a SSFUSD meeting and that update can be found HERE.

In February, Everything South City shared an article regarding this award to Project Frog,  ‘Project Frog Awarded Contract for New Facilities for South San Francisco Unified School District’.

I am torn about this. I understand that these prefab buildings offer a way for SSFUSD to perhaps get more for our tax dollars. I just don’t think that we are getting what we voted for.

The idea was to replace all of the portable buildings with new built-in-place structures that would last for many decades. Instead, it seems we will get fancier portable buildings that the ones we are replacing. I just wonder how long before we will be clamoring to replace these?

Thanks for the response.
I’m sorry, but a 10 year life span just doesn’t do it for me and my tax dollars. I would prefer less buildings and more life-span myself.

I’m glad to see that at least one other voter may be unhappy with what the SSFUSD is doing with our Measure J funds. As suggested I will be sending my concerns to the Superintendent and School Board. Anybody else?
